I'm just getting my stuff.
  —Butterfly to Mantis, Sticky Situation  

Butterfly is a character who was briefly mentioned in the episode "Sticky Situation" from Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness. She is, as her name suggests, a butterfly who is currently Mantis' girlfriend.


Early years

Nothing is known about Butterfly's past life, though it was noted that she met Mantis when she was a caterpillar.

In Legends of Awesomeness

During the episode, Mantis was mourning the loss of his girlfriend, who for reasons unknown had dumped him after transforming into a butterfly. She later made an off-screen appearance, in which while talking with Po, Mantis mentioned that everything he looked at reminded him of her, including a nearby butterfly. However, Po noticed that it was actually her, having briefly returned to collect her stuff. By the end of the episode, Mantis was eating some of Po's sticky dumplings, having gotten over his loss. Po stated that nobody really liked Butterfly, but quickly gave a compliment when Mantis revealed that he and Butterfly had gotten back together.

However, they may have broken up again sometime before the events of "Hometown Hero", as Mantis was almost married to his ex-fiancée Hao Ming during that episode.


Very little is known about Butterfly's personality, as she never made an onscreen appearance and it was never known why she dumped Mantis in the first place. However, it can be noted that she seemed to genuinely like Mantis, as she and Mantis got back together in the end.



It was never specified exactly why Mantis was dumped, but they reconciled by the end of the episode.
